    July 5, 2014 - I thoroughly enjoyed this Brouilly over 2 days. It kept well even. The age has perhaps taken just a bit off the hard edges, so it has lost a tiny bit of vibrancy. However it gained in integration I think. I look forward to the other bottle.

    November 18, 2013 - Ce Brouilly a une fraicheur et un charme immédiat en attaque. La densité de la bouche et son coté minéral en font plus qu’un vin festif et gouleyant. La finale est toutefois un peu chaude, avec un coté lactique. Je lui trouvais plus d’équilibre en jeunesse. Une évolution décevante. Est-ce un vin entre deux âges, ou qui aurait du être bu? Je l’ignore. 88 pts

    May 7, 2013 - Un joli nez floral. Une bouche avec de la fraîcheur et du fruit, belle texture, mais cette bouteille montre une chaleur en finale qui amène un déséquilibre. Pas à la hauteur. 87 pts

    November 15, 2012 - Quick Impressions of a Slew of Beaujolais (Arlequin Wine Merchant, San Francisco): Deep color. Grapy nose. Spicy fruit.
